Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

John I sure some of the names are spelt incorrectly , certainly Major Bangeugh ! . I wonder if the Lt Platner you listed is the the same chap who was killed in action at the commencement of the Nyezane Battle ?? .

90th,

He could well be if you look at some of the other names at the bottom there.

Captain de Burgh - Captain Ulick de Burgh, 2nd NNC, later No.1 Troop, Natal Horse.

Captain Carrol - Lt. James (or Joshua) Carrol 2nd NNC.

Captain Holder - Lt. A. H. Halder 2nd NNC.


Lieuts
Cook - Lt. John William Cooke 2nd NNC. Later Captain No. 2 Troop, Natal Horse.

Oswald

Starke - Lt. A .B. Starke 2nd NNC.

Platner - Lt. J. Gustav Plattner 2nd NNC kia Nyezane 22nd January 1879.

Some other names fit the bill for other-ranks in the N.N.C. and later the Natal Horse such as Petrie who served in No. 3 Troop, Natal Horse.

I wonder if the errors are in the original source or the transcription on the Moles Genealogy site?
